The cast and crew of Marvel’s 2018 film “Black Panther” decided to scare the bejeezus out of “Get Out” star Daniel Kaluuya by participating in the #GetOutChallenge.
The #GetOutChallenge is the new social media craze influenced by a very particular scene in Jordan Peele’s movie. Participants are to mimic the scene in which Chris (Kaluuya) steps outside in the middle of the night for a smoke and encounters Walter running full speed at him before making a quick turn.
Posted on Instagram by “Black Panther” star Lupita Nyong’o, the video features Kaluuya scrolling on his phone when he realizes at least a dozen people sprinting straight for him.
“Black Panther” stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, Andy Serkis and Sterling K. Brown, and is being directed by “Fruitvale Station” helmer Ryan Coogler.
“Black Panther,” which will focus on T’Challa (Boseman) after he first made his appearance in last year’s “Captain America: Civil War,” opens Feb. 16, 2018.
“Get Out” is a critically-acclaimed box office phenomenon: so far, it’s made over $160 million on a budget of $4.5 million. Peele became the first African-American debut feature director to cross the $100 million mark.
